LibriVox recording of Indiscretions of Archie, by P. G. Wodehouse. Read by Mark Nelson.
It wasn't Archie's fault really. It's true he went to America and fell in love with Lucille, the daughter of a millionaire hotel proprietor and if he did marry her--well, what else was there to do?
From his point of view, the whole thing was a thoroughly good egg; but Mr. Brewster, his father-in-law, thought differently, Archie had neither money nor occupation, which was distasteful in the eyes of the industrious Mr. Brewster; but the real bar was the fact that he had once adversely criticised one of his hotels.
Archie does his best to heal the breach; but, being something of an ass, genus priceless, he finds it almost beyond his powers to placate "the man-eating fish" whom Providence has given him as a father-in-law.

This story was well narrated and it was just so funny. I laughed out loud many times. Enjoy!

Archie is a well-meaning old bean who loves his wife dearly and would love to feel the same toward his father-in-law. Alas, Archie's FIL hates him, what what. That does not discourage Archie who is determined to fit into his new American family. The book is well-written, funny, and endearing all at once. But, after all, it is a Wodehouse book. :-)
Mark Nelson does his usual jolly fine job as reader. Enjoy!
